On July 11th our NJSCA coach bus filled with counselors from throughout the state of NJ returned from a three day trip to Connecticut where we toured both private and public colleges including Western Connecticut State University, Fairfield University, Sacred Heart University, Quinnipiac University, U Conn, and Trinity College.
We gathered helpful information, enjoyed good weather (until our arrival back in NJ in a deluge of rain), formed relationships with other counselors, and had fun. The Admissions Representatives couldn’t have been more hospitable. A Welcome cocktail party was hosted by Sacred Heart University at our Marriott Hotel, and stand-up comedy was provided by Larry, our comedian. The colleges provided meaningful presentations, campus tours, and opportunities to interact with students and staff.
Check out this Prezi from Colleen Bodek, Director of Guidance/Testing at Roselle Park School District. She compiled her notes and pictures from the tours!
At the end of the tour the question asked of Carmine Venes, our tour Coordinator was: Where are we going next year?
The answer: Check NJSCA.com in April to find out!
